Apple's latest iOS 15 comes with the ability to add a Portrait Mode in video calls made via FaceTime and other video calling apps. This feature allows the user to add a bokeh effect to the video call, which can help hide the background. It's one of the really useful and exciting features offered in iOS 15.
Aside from an always-on display with limited customizability, the iPhone 13 should debut new photography features like Portrait mode improvements and an all-new astrophotography mode.
Some recently asked on Twitter how to add a landscape page to a portrait document in Pages. Unfortunately, the answer is, you can’t. Why not is a mystery. But if you have access to Microsoft Word, you can mix page orientations there.
This is convenient for many types of documents. You may want to insert a table or spreadsheet of data, include a landscape-view, full-page image, or create a brochure or pamphlet that requires both portrait and landscape pages.
If you’re willing and able to open your document in Word, here’s how to mix portrait and landscape pages in one document.
The powerful Halide Camera app for iPhone, as well as the long-exposure Spectre app from the same developers, have been refreshed on the App Store with some cool new features bringing depth-of-field photography support for pets and inanimate objects to the new iPhone SE.
Apple’s iPhones sport some of the best mobile point-and-shoot cameras in the industry. While their megapixel counts aren’t always as high as some of the Android-powered handsets out there, an iPhone’s camera stands apart from the rest because of the powerful software that drives it, and this includes the Portrait mode that comes baked into the native Camera app.
Portrait mode comes in handy at times when trying to snap the ideal photograph of a subject – be it an object or a person. Sadly, it’s limited to handsets that are equipped with dual cameras, with the iPhone XR being the lone exception to this rule, but jailbreakers can now take advantage of a newly-released jailbreak tweak called PortraitXI by iOS developer foxfortmobile to circumvent this needless limitation.
Apple's Portrait mode is one of the best features of its cameras in the latest iPhone lineup, and the company is showing off the power of that feature in its latest Shot on iPhone XS video.
Just yesterday we showed you a jailbreak tweak called DownLocker that permitted users to lock their handset by placing it face-down on a desk or tabletop; but today, we’re excited to show you a new free jailbreak tweak called XB-WakeDevice by iOS developer Oliver Crespo that lets users customize how they wake their handset back up again, among other things.
While the Raise to Wake feature reigns supreme on many of Apple’s latest handsets, the same can’t be said about all iPhones and iPads. Furthermore, not everyone uses Raise to Wake, and XB-WakeDevice appeals to both of these somewhat ‘niche’ audiences.
Some cool new features are coming to Google Photos for iOS, including Portrait mode bokeh editing and changing the focal point of the blur, as well as leaving the subject of your photograph in color whilst changing the background to black and white.
Apple today issued a press release to share a bunch of user-submitted Portrait mode photographs with Depth Control that were shot with an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max.
Portrait photography on iPhone XR yields surprisingly good results in some low light situations where it’s unusable on the costlier iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices.
Facebook yesterday announced a new imaging feature which takes advantage of depth information between the foreground subject and the background to bring simulated 3D perspective to your Portrait mode photos, creating a feeling similar to iOS's parallax effect where your Home screen wallpaper moves or shifts slightly as you tilt your iPhone.
Apple today posted a new photography-focused iPhone X ad on its official YouTube channel.
